Yuu-Chan Update

#1 here, coming to you from sunny Nova Scotia. Yuu-Chan and Ms. S just got back from visiting Dr. C, our wonderful vet. Her verdict is that Yuu-Chan has an infection around the joint of his ankle, probably coming initially from a bite during play. He has a fever and the joint is swollen, but he has been put on antibiotics and a new kind of anti-inflammatory, and he should start to get better very quickly. The trick, actually, will be to keep him quiet as he improves. So, he may have to spend some time in the back room, alone or with just Sei-Chan for company.

I don't have any new photos of him to post as I write this, but how about a nice older one?

Oh poor Yuu-Chan - that stinks that he is feeling so poorly and will have to rest. And we know that the resting will be the tough part for an active boy like him! We are sending him lots of purrs and prayers for a quick recovery!

What a precious little face. We hope the antibiotics do the trick quickly. #1, we are glad you have arrived at your destination and hope you have a wonderful stay in Nova Scotia.

We are happy that Yuu got a diagnosis and hope the antibiotics and other meds work quickly. Hopefully Yuu-chan will stay mellow in the back room for awhile so he can heal.
